Thoughts & Prayers, A Short Video Game That Skewers Gun Control Inaction

Thoughts & Prayers, A Short Video Game That Skewers Gun Control Inaction

Every time there's a mass shooting in America -- which is more or less constantly -- politicians take to social media to talk about their thoughts and prayers. NRA-supported politicians tend to be particularly thoughtful and prayerful, something that's thankfully been called out more aggressively of late.

Thoughts & Prayers is a short, easy-to-play online game from political game-makers The GOP Arcade. It isn't really a game you can win; it's more of a brief, pointed interactive commentary on the rhetoric of inaction. You can probably guess the punchline. Play it here.

    I should write a Chrome plugin that replaces the phrase "my thoughts and prayers go to the family of the victims" with "I'm going to do nothing about this".

      I would download and run that plug in, right next to "Make Donald Drumpf again."

      Could you please include the phrase "we must not politicize this" to your plugin as well?

    This guy nails it on the head. Anthony Jeselnik talks about thoughts and prayers.
